Content

The lecture deals with the different principles of the conversion of fuel energy as well as the main requirements on combustion engines. On the basis of standard cycles, the thermodynamic coherences of the engine process are shown. It also deals with the definition of the different efficiencies. The application of these coherences is carried out by dealing with important parameters for the layout of combustion engines.

Under consideration of a classification of the combustion engines regarding its different features, the type of process, the process of combustion, the type of ignition and the kinematics, selected aspects of the engine technology are observed. To conclude, a close observation of the formation of pollutants and its after treatment for gasoline and diesel engines is carried out.

 

Topics

The following topics are dealt with:

  • Kinematics and Forces of Combustion Engines
  • Mass Force of Combustion Engines
  • Thermodynamic Fundamentals
  • Characteristic Values
  • The Process in Gasoline Engines
  • The Process in Diesel Engines
  • Pollutant Development and Exhaust Gas After Treatment
  • Classification of Combustion Engines
